	title        = {Beskriva utan att diskriminera. Representation av könsidentitet och sexuell läggning i Svensk ordbok},
	abstract     = {The purpose of the paper is to present and discuss the treatment
of controversial words in the development of a new edition of the
Swedish monolingual dictionary Svensk ordbok utgiven av Svenska
Akademien (SO), which is expected to be published in 2021. The
focus of the article is on the semantic fields of sexual orientation
and gender identity, and the challenges met in the process of developing
a non-discriminatory and descriptively adequate resource.
A more inclusive and updated lemma list is put forward, as well as
revisions of definitions and linguistic examples. The article discusses
usage labels of negatively charged words and explores the role of
links to promote non-discriminatory word choices. Furthermore,
methodological questions are raised, and the role of corpora and
other sources of data is discussed.},
